Item level limitation?Follow

I wrote about this in another topic, but I just want this to be out there.

I wonder how they plan on doing the item limitation without any levels. They already stated that they don't intend on having levels which is fine and I understand that relatively well. But in an mmo how do you plan on having items for sale and to be found without limitations on when to be equipped?

Off the top of my head, the options might end up being.. no limitations (bad idea of course) every different job has a very specific type of armor worn, going from very light, light, medium, medium heavy, heavy, and super heavy types. Depending on your job depends on what you can wear and from there add other specific limitation where you need to have a base stat of xxx need to equip. Weapons i guess can be delegated by your current skill in wielding that weapon type.

any other ideas?

Well, aside from job type, I'm thinking perhaps skill or base stat requirements.

I was thinking something along the lines of what you were thinking with needing so much of stat X in order to equip an item.

BLM will obviously need X amount of INT/WIS for gear while WAR will need X amount of STR/VIT.

Anyone have a feeling they are going to do something very similar to the trees in FFX?

I wish SE would give us a bone to chew on so we could stop playing all this guess work.

They're too busy trolling Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross fans.

I remember in FFXI how the stats on some items, such as the rings you got from finishing CoP, improved as your level improved. Maybe items in FFXIV do something similar, only they improve as certain skill levels of you character improve.
